'Serious damage' in English Channel three-boat crash

Sounds nasty
A Liberian-registered cargo ship, heading towards Genoa in Italy, passed between a tug and a smaller vessel it was towing, causing serious damage.

Link

Is the tug at fault for getting in the way?

Overtaking vessel keeps clear. 17 knot freighter against 5- 7 knot towing tug with tow several hundred metres behind. Most probably restricted in ability to manover also.

Good thing that no one was lost! Tug's can go down very, very fast. They possible ejected the tow wire before it was to late or then it just broke.

Very lucky indeed by all accounts. The Bulk Carrier passed between tug and tow, impacting the barge on the way through. It would seem that the tow wire didn't foul anything on the carrier because the potential consequences if it had fouled the rudder or propulsion system don't bear thinking about.

The tug would would have been in serious jeopardy, for sure.
